The object of Payday FreeCell solitaire is to move all the cards from the table to the four foundation stacks at the top right half of the screen. Each foundation stack must begin with the Ace of the matching suit. New cards of the same suit are added to the stack in ascending sequence: A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K. You will always earn a token for every card you place in the foundation stacks. You will also see some special bonus "scratcher" cards on the table. When you remove these cards from the table, you may receive special bonus tokens. When you sort all 52 cards into the correct foundation stacks in the correct order, you win the game; then you keep all your bonus tokens and receive a Jackpot Spin!

A letter goes along with each number to help you find the numbers on your card more quickly. All the shuffles and deals of the cards are completely random. Unlike First Class Solitaire, it is almost always possible to remove all the cards from the table in Payday Free Cell solitaire. It may not feel like it, and you may get stuck or run out of legal moves, but the absolutely unsolvable hands occur less than 0.01% of the time. Replaying the same hand in a different way may allow for completing the game. The more you play, the better you get. The better you get, the more free cell solitaire games you complete and the more tokens you win!

Using only the cards at the bottom of the columns, there are three ways that game play can be started:
  • Any Ace at the bottom of a column should be moved up to its foundation stack.
  • Any other card may be placed on an alternate color card that is one value higher than that card.
  • Any card at the bottom of a column may be moved up to a Free Cell.

Here are some additional pointers designed to help you become a more advanced Payday Free Cell solitaire player.

Avoid building stacks on low numbered cards because you will probably need them sooner than you think.

Move any Aces at or near the bottom of the columns first.

Try to place cards in the Free Cells that you can easily put back onto the playfield.

Once you place a card in the foundation stack, you can't put it back into play.

There are times when you must manually move cards to the foundation stacks.

You don't get bonus points for using less moves or finishing quickly. In other words, take your time.

To reveal a specific card on the Free Cell solitaire table, right click on it.

Try not to fill up the top four Free Cells right away as it leaves less room for moving cards around.

Don't worry about chasing the bonus cards. Focus on winning the game by moving the cards to the foundation stacks first, and the bonus cards will come naturally.

Bonus cards are divided into four parts. Click on any part to scratch it off and get the number of points (or tokens) shown. The four bonus cards are additions to the regular 52 cards in the deck and have no suit or face value, other than the number of tokens earned.

Yes, and it still doesn't load. It has been like this for a couple weeks. However, everything else seems to be ok and it doesn't affect game play.

@VisFourth: Have you tried a different browser to see if the high score list opens?

This doesn't work and it's still not opening.

Payday FreeCell • Re: rankings?

By Seska42 » June 13th, 2014, 5:17 pm

Payday FreeCell was available to play before ranks were added to the game. Any games that you won before the ranks were added do not count toward the ranks.

It takes 12,150 wins to reach rank 70 but those wins have to have occurred after the ranks were added.

By foreversapphire » June 12th, 2014, 1:59 pm

Payday FreeCell • rank progress error

By Sew1rip2 » June 5th, 2014, 9:29 pm

I am currently at rank 62 and need 300 wins to advance to 63. I started playing last night at 290 wins and when I got up to 298 I looked at the game count and it had me back to 98 wins to next rank. Any advice on what to do about this? It's bad enough to have to replay 298 games but I sure don't want to get close to 300 and have the progress set back again. Don't know how to e-mail Pogo support. Has anyone else had this happen?

Thank you for the info, but how do I find out when that badge was added? I had won the first badge (100 wins) in 2007. I thought I remembered that one being there as well.

Games that you won before the ranks went live don't count toward the game award badges. Your win total in the stats counts all the games you've ever won so it's not accurate in regards to when you will get your rank badge if you started playing before ranks were added to the game. You would need to subtract how many wins you had when ranks were added to know exactly when you'd get the rank badge.

I am supposed to earn The Right Moves Badge after winning 3 games. I have won 6 games but only gotten credit for 2 games, thus not earning the badge.

Why doesn't Free Cell come up anymore so that I can play as I have been for years. Is it now only for club members. It only shows How to Play. No game


You probably have the How To Play tab open. Click on the Chat Rooms tab underneath the game.
